I have been working with computers since way back in 1983. During these 30+ years, I have witnessed, and been part of, many exciting developments. By far the greatest opportunity has been the ability to teach to a global online audience.

  • Was first taught how to teach by Royal Australian Air Force (AIRTC Cadet) at age 15
  • Web Developer since 1995
  • Built over 100 websites for clients ranging from national organisations to small businesses
  • Over 30,000 students have enrolled in a course
  • Almost 3,000,000 video views at YouTube, plus over 16,000 subscribers

You'll usually find me staring at some sort of screen, but when I escape, I'm either juggling four kids, or zipping around on the scooter, or hiking somewhere, in my home town of Sydney, Australia.
